Explorers Lodge offers bed and breakfast guest rooms and self-contained apartments in a graceful New England designed property at New Norfolk, in the picturesque Derwent Valley of Southern Tasmania.
All guest rooms have a private ensuite bathroom, accommodate up to two people and feature a fridge, facilities for making tea or coffee, digital television and plush king or queen beds.
An added convenience includes access to a choice of Hamptons inspired living areas to unwind with a good book in a rocking chair or perhaps a glass of wine around the cosy open fire in the lounge.
You’ll be prepared for the day ahead with our highly regarded full cooked and continental breakfast.
Our self-contained apartments accommodate up to four guests and come fully equipped with kitchens, separate living areas, large digital televisions with complimentary media streaming and plush king beds.
The tranquil, landscaped gardens are a peaceful haven of tall trees for all guests to enjoy. Our fruit trees are ripe for the picking, mingle with our chickens or gather at the outdoor gazebo for a self-prepared barbeque.
Five minutes away are the historical pubs and antique shops of New Norfolk, the friendliest market in Tasmania every Saturday – The Banjo’s New Norfolk market, historic Willow Court, Agrarian Kitchen eatery and cooking school, New Norfolk Distillery and the River Derwent.
